banner-nexus-4-e960-maddoggin-rom-121220The game is afoot, well at least for those inĀ Australia And Spain. It appears that the Google Nexus 4 smartphone is in stock in Google Play for lucky customers in those twoĀ countries.Ā  Both the 8GB and 16GB models areĀ availableĀ with the Spanish buyers able to pick up the 8GB version for 299 Euros and the 16GB one for 349 Euros. InĀ Australia the 8GB device isĀ availableĀ for $349 and the 16GB goes for $399 (Australian dollars that is).

The mystery behind the lack of availabilityĀ for the Nexus 4 is still to be solved. Was it a production problem? Was it logistics? Was the demand just far greater than Google and LG everĀ imagined?

One thing is known, during a recent earnings call, Google’s CEO Larry Page acknowledged that was a problem and said there is ā€œwork to be done managing our supply betterā€. He added that Ā solving the Nexus 4 shortage problem will be ā€œpriority for the teamsā€. AlsoĀ LG gave some assurancesĀ recentlyĀ that there will be more devices available from mid-February.

So, those in Spain andĀ Australia go grab the Nexus 4 while you can, stocks aren’t guaranteedĀ to last as the last time the Nexus 4 became available inĀ Australia the 16GB model sold out in 20 minutes!
